How Do I Turn Uconnect® On? Can I Turn Uconnect® Off?

Your Uconnect® system will always be on when your car is on, so there’s no need to turn Uconnect® on or off. You’ll simply need to pair your phone to Uconnect®, so that you can enjoy its many connectivity benefits.

That’s not to say you don’t have control over the Uconnect® system, however. For instance, Gardner drivers can turn off the radio or the screen. If you wish to turn off text message alerts, you can simply hit the “Phone” button and follow the necessary prompts. In turning off these alerts, you may just earn the serene peace and quiet you seek for your Olathe hiking excursions.

In short, while you cannot turn off Uconnect® entirely, you can configure certain features of the Uconnect® system.
